Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’. there are seven major chakras in our physical body. Each chakra is responsible for various functions both physical and emotional. they each have a colour and belong to an element. Please check out the diagram below and a few keywords explaining what each chakra represents.
The first chakra is red and is at the base of the spine this is called the root chakra. The root chakra opens downwards and connects us to the earth. the root chakra helps us to stay grounded by receiving energy through the soles of our feet. If you are not feeling grounded it is important to kick off your shoes and get in touch with mother nature walk on the grass or sand this will help to re – balance your root chakra.
The second chakra is between the hip bones this called the sacral chakra. Orange is the colour of the sacral chakra and the key element is water . One of the main functions of the sacral chakra is to assist us in forming healthy sexual and emotional relationships with others. The sacral chakra can also inspire our creativity. When our sacral chakra is fully open we can experience real joy of life. A great way of awaking your sacral chakra is to dance around.
The third chakra is above the naval and is called the solar plexus chakra. This chakra is yellow and is associated with the sun it’s key element is fire. This is where we feel that butterfly sensation that is your solar plexus in action. this is the chakra that enables to feel power but it is also where we feel fear and anxiety .

I often use crystals that are associated with the chakras to keep them in balance. Simply lay in a comfortable space on your back and place the crystals on the chakra positions I have already mentioned then totally relax and imagine all your chakras opening up like lotus flowers blossoming. Each chakra radiating the colour that it is associated with. It is a beautiful experience and you can feel you mind body and soul merge into one.
